2017 Yukon Quest – Whitehorse to Fairbanks – starts on Saturday, February 4th!

 

Meet the 2017 Yukon Quest Mushers!

Lots of familiar names on the roster of 21 mushers with only 5 rookies new to the Quest.  Dave will be starting his 27th Yukon Quest this Saturday in his 30th year of running sled dogs in Alaska.  With a substantial training schedule completed, the Gang is feeling good.  Food and supplies have been packed into 40 lb bags to be distributed along the trail to keep musher and dog team fed and well supplies on their 1000 mile journey.  Dave and the Gang, along with a pretty wicked handler team will depart for Whitehorse this week and take part in several events prior to departing on Saturday.  Check out Yukon Quest events happening this week in Whitehorse!
